Memories Timeline


  1. What a sad loss of a great person to us all. We had lots of funny, fun and memorable times in school. You were a kind, funny and genuine person. Praying you are at rest and find happiness wherever you may now be. I pray that you and your family find peace and strength during these difficult times ♥️

  2. Joe we only knew each other for 6 and a half short years we started by taking our test the same day and started our career a week apart. We talked multiple times a day since. it’s not going to be the same without you. I’m going to miss you bud. rest in peace

  3. To our dear Nephew Joe, words cannot describe what we are feeling at this time. We loved you so much. We will miss you every day of our lives. May you rest in peace. You will always be in our hearts. We will never forget you. Love Aunt B and Uncle Nick.

  4. To my cuz –

    I don’t have the words to tell you how much I love you and looked up to you. You taught me everything I know about fishing and many other things. Life is just not fair sometimes cause I would trade anything to have you back here. No matter what, I will do everything in my power to show anthony the way, and make him know how amazing of a dad you are. Won’t be able to teach him how to fish as good as you would, but I’ll do my best (even though you always told me I sucked). Man jlJoe I will miss you so much bro, send me some strength to carry to on and also maybe some luck to land a luker largemouth. Love you brother, till we meet again ❤️

  5. There are no words of comfort that can mend our hearts, a part of us is forever gone. Joe was our son-in-law but the “in law” part was just a title when he married our daughter, he was the son we never had.

    We didn’t give him the gift of life, life gave us the gift of Joe. The bond between us is an eternal one, it is not DNA, flesh or blood, but heart that made us family. We consider ourselves blessed and so lucky to have had him in our lives.

    His greatest accomplishment was his son, our grandson
    Anthony. We will always be there for him to remind him everyday how much his dad loved him and how proud he was of him.

    We will love and miss him always and forever until we meet again.

  6. This is so very shocking and sad! I wish his family healing and love! We are saddened to hear this news! R.I.P. a gem of a person! Now he will protect his family from above

  7. No words can be said that will lessen the pain and hurt that your family and friends are feeling. I just pray in time the memories of you will always remain in their hearts . I know it will in mine . My family was blessed to have known you for the passed 8 years. We’ve enjoyed our time with you talking about your 49ers and you lending me your sweatshirt lol. You will be forever missed and we will make sure Anthony will always know what an amazing dad you were and how much you loved him.

  8. You are someone I will not forget because you were passionate about your hobby like myself and you were genuinely a good friend. I will miss you and I will see you again.

  9. We are so very sorry to hear of Joe’s passing. A terrible loss for his family and friends. Our deepest condolences go out to Stephanie, Anthony, Gianna and the entire family. We hope you find comfort and peace with family and friends, and knowing his spirit and presence live on in all of you. God bless all of you and may he give you strength and comfort. Rest in Peace Joe.

  10. Joe, we did countless jobs together and you taught me more than you know. You were a coworker that became a good friend and someone who I spoke with pretty much every day. Your voice would change when you would talk about your son and taking him fishing, golfing, or to baseball practice. You’re going to be deeply missed by many. Rest Easy buddy.
